Legalisation of documents from French Polynesia for use in the Netherlands
If you want to use a document from French Polynesia in the Netherlands, you must have it legalised by the local French authorities in Papeete.
Due to the corona virus, you cannot have foreign documents legalised at most embassies or consulates-general until further notice. Please check the contact page of the embassy or consulate-general to see if and from when it is possible to have your document legalised. Don't see a start date on the contact page? Then it is not yet possible. Do you only need to have your documents legalised by the local authorities? Then check with the local authorities if that is possible.
Which documents can be legalised?

- an official copy of a birth certificate
- a certificate of unmarried status
- an official copy of a marriage certificate
- an official copy of a divorce certificate
- an official copy of a death certificate
Ask the local authorities in French Polynesia where you can get these documents.
